In September, 1938 The Separate Classification Of Reorganization Cases Was Discontinued, Subsequent To Elimination Of Paragraph 77-B From The National Bankruptcy Act, And The Data Were Revised Accordingly Back To June, 1934 (See Dun'S Statistical Review, February, 1939). This Segment Ends Due To A Revision Of March 1940, Effected By Change To A More Complete Coverage Of Voluntary Discontinuances With Losses To Creditors And Of Small Failures Not Previously Covered By Dun And Bradstreet (See Source, March, 1940).
